Connected to the upmarket IFC (Global Financing Centre) structure and shopping center, the striking glass front of this high-end hotel stands proud versus the bottle green of Victoria Harbour. The lobby was produced gawping, with its triple height window framing the Central Star Ferryboat pier outdoors and the ups and downs of lenders, magnates, tai pans and tai tais inside. All of the spaces were redone throughout the pandemic in properly elegant (if a little foreseeable) golds and dark woods, with huge marble restrooms, clever Televisions, Bose speakers and sleep menus that include bedtime foot massages and Tibetan singing bowl routines. A more amazing brand-new addition is Argo, a mirrored birdcage of a mixed drink bar filled with the upper class in their finest plumage. 3 dining establishment– Caprice, Lung Kin Heen, Sushi Saito– share 7 Michelin stars in between them. The swimming pool balcony lapped by the harbour and extensive holistic health spa are likewise strong draws.
The Landmark Mandarin Asian
For the socialising
When you ask a Hong Kong cab driver to take you to Male Wah (the Mandarin), the very first thing they’ll ask you is, ‘old or brand-new?’ The Landmark Mandarin Asian is the more recent of the 2, the stylish little sibling situated on Queen’s Roadway, a couple of blocks far from the initial. Hemmed in by high-rises there are no views worth pointing out. Rather, all eyes are on the Joyce Wang interiors, the Michelin star food and the stylish clients (the hotel was stated to have actually been a favourite of Giorgio Armani). The 113 spaces are modern yet cosseting, with champagne-gold walls and dark wood floorings, angular headboards and subtle commercial touches– anodized metals, ridged surface areas, mounted lights. Then there’s the health spa, which unfurls over 2 levels and consists of a pool, a hammam, steam bath, saunas and a Bastien Gonzales Mani-Pedi studio. Amber is among the couple of dining establishments in Asia to have actually accomplished a Green Michelin star.
